Cream Cheese Kolacky


  • 1 (10 ounce) bag dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 cups flour
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Place apricots in medium saucepan; cover with water. Soak overnight.
  2. Heat the apricots and water to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat; reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring often with fork to mash and adding water if needed, until smooth and thick, about 10 minutes. (If necessary, you can chop finely with a knife or process about 1 minute in a food processor or chopper.)
  3. Add the granulated sugar, stirring until it dissolves. Cool completely.
  4. Blend together the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl; gradually blend in flour, using hands once the dough has begun to form, until it can be shaped into a ball (this may be more or less than 2 cups). Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough into thirds. Roll out each third on a floured board into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle, 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 2-inch squares with a pizza cutter. Place 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of the apricot filling in the middle of each square. Fold each corner into middle; pinch together. (Moisten fingers with cold water if dough does not stick.)
  6. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets; bake until golden, about 17 minutes per batch.
  7. Cool on wire rack; sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
